Alan Duerden, CAD support engineer for Renault F1 Team, will speak on developing composite racecar parts using FiberSIM(R) softwareWALTHAM, Mass.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—March 21, 2006— VISTAGY, Inc., the developer of composites engineering software that provides specialized design functionality to commercial CAD/PDM/PLM systems, will be in attendance at the JEC Composites Show 2006. The event runs from March 28 to March 30 at the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles in Paris, France.
The Renault F1 Team racecar will be on exhibit at the VISTAGY booth (#C21). Renault F1 Team has used FiberSIM(R) to advance the design and manufacture of composite components on three generations of racecars, including the R25 car, which raced the team to victory in both the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) Formula One Drivers' and Constructors' World Championships in 2005. Alan Duerden, CAD support engineer for the team, will give a presentation titled "Champion cars, composite parts, and FiberSIM" in the VISTAGY booth at the following times:
-- Tuesday, March 28: 10:30, 13:30, and 16:30
-- Wednesday, March 29: 10:30, 13:30, and 16:30
-- Thursday, March 30: 9:30, 11:30, and 14:30
In addition, regular demonstrations of the latest release of FiberSIM software will take place in the booth. FiberSIM 5.1 boasts several major new capabilities, including new tools for merging models, defining zones, generating automated plybooks, and specifying splices and drop-offs. The booth will also feature demonstrations of the recently delivered Airframe Design Environment(TM) (ADE), powered by VISTAGY's EnCapta(R) technology, which helps engineers design airframe assemblies.
VISTAGY will also offer two related presentations:
-- JEC Composites Show 2006 Thursday, March 30 at 14:30 "Enabling Design Innovation for Emerging Composite Manufacturing Processes" Dr. Olivier Guillerman, VISTAGY director of business development JEC Automotive Forum in Hall 1 Auditorium
-- SAMPE Europe Conference 2006 Wednesday, March 29, 2006 at 9:40 "Designing Composite Structures for Advanced Manufacturing Processes" Adrienne Sekerak, VISTAGY technical consultant Hotel Mercure Paris Porte de la Plaine Vanves in session 8C

FiberSIM(R) is a suite of software that turns commercial CAD systems into tools specialized for designing and manufacturing composite parts. The software enables engineers to create a complete digital product definition of a composite part within their 3D modeling environment. FiberSIM supports the entire product development process as well as flexible design methodologies for a wide variety of materials and manufacturing methods. The software simulates how composite material deforms over complex curvature and generates manufacturing information including documentation, flat patterns, and data to drive downstream manufacturing equipment. FiberSIM also uses XML technology to share composites data with people and applications throughout the enterprise.
